The Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas hosts five eyewitnesses of the Lee Harvey Oswald shooting, including news reporters and the police detective who was handcuffed to the prisoner. Oswald was suspected of killing President Kennedy and was being transported to the Dallas courthouse when Jack Ruby shot him in the basement of the police department on November 24, 1963. Oswald died hours later. Panelists discuss their experiences from that day and talk about the impact of the event on the media and on their lives.
